Veteran's Resource Center
Did you serve in the military? Then you are a veteran making you eligible for a variety of benefits. The Veteran's Resource Center at the San Leandro Public Library is dedicated to helping Veterans and their families. The Center provides assistance through trained volunteers who can connect Veterans and their families to benefits and resources. The Center also provides access to books, DVDs and pamphlets on various topics including transitioning from military to civilian life, finding jobs, surviving change, Veterans benefits and managing post-traumatic stress disorders.
Access to resource materials at the Veterans Resource Center is available during regular library hours. Benefit coaches are available on Tuesday. Call first to ensure that someone is in before you visit, 510-577-3993. The best way to get assistance from a benefit coach is to make an appointment by calling 510-577-3993 or emailing the Veteran's Resource Center.
Volunteer available for over the phone help. Monday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, call 510-289-1119 (no voicemail) or email us.
The Veterans Resource Center at the San Leandro Public Library was made possible by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grant along with Veterans Connect at the Library.
